`Teej' collection

Combining the autumn-winter 2003 fashion forecast with festive colours of `Teej', Tatva presents a collection of saris, salwar kameez and kurtis, today and tomorrow at ITC Kakatiya Sheraton Hotel and Towers.



TRADITIONAL COUTURE: Affordable designer wear.

MANY ESTABLISHED and upcoming designers are finding favour with the Hyderabadi market. The Indian fashion scene is driven by the wedding and festive calendar.

Merging the autumn-winter fashion forecast with the teej festivities is the ongoing `Vintage inspired collection' by `Tatva' at ITC Kakatiya Sheraton Hotel and Towers.

A noted label of Kolkata-based designer Bhanu Jhunjhunwala, `Tatva' is affordable designer wear. Based on the colours, designs and pricing that found favour with the customers during her previous exhibitions in the twin cities, which were a sell out, Bhanu brings pręt collections from `Om', Bangalore; `Rudraksh', Mumbai and `Free Fall', New Delhi apart from the `Tatva' line of Indo-westerns.



ELEGANT EMBELLISHMENTS: The outfits are embroidered in various ways.

Kurtis are priced at Rs. 500 onwards, the options ranging from simple printed cottons to dressy crepes with sequins. Pair them up with regular denims or haute pants.

Comfortable cottons, khadi and linen lines in salwar kameez are priced between Rs.1,000 and Rs.2,000, while the semi-formal range in printed crepes with gota work and Gujarati embroidery or from the `crystal collection' featuring jewel embroidery, is priced from Rs. 2,500 onwards.

Saris (Rs.1,000-Rs.7,000) in Kota, printed crepes, georgettes and chiffons with phulkari, antique maal ka kaam, Gujarati and Lambada work are ideal as bridal and party wear.

Overall, the collection finds traditional fabrics, brocades and khadi, Lambada mirror work and resham embroidery taking a hip image — the floral and geometric motifs are chic and the colours are quite fresh.

The `Tatva' collection is available today and tomorrow, at the Cabinet, ITC Kakatiya Sheraton Hotel and Towers from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. For details, contact 98490-15210.
